If you’re eager to elevate your karting experience and transition to the next level of kart speed, please don’t hesitate to inform us during the booking process. Alternatively, you can have a discussion with our on-site race director, who will be more than delighted to guide you in the right direction.
As a general practice, trophies are not automatically included with our events. However, you have the option to add trophies as an extra feature to your booking. Should trophies be part of your event, this will be explicitly indicated on the event page of our website for your convenience.
Indeed, we do permit “like-minded” groups to share the track. These particular sessions fall under the “Kids & Family” category, where both 120cc and 200cc karts coexist. It’s important to be aware that these sessions are closely monitored and adjusted for the benefit of the younger, less experienced drivers. We kindly request that the grown-ups exercise caution and drive with care, as they share the track with our younger superstars.
This feature serves as a safety mechanism, designed to reduce the speed of the karts in the event of a track incident. This crucial function minimizes potential risks to both drivers and track marshals. Additionally, it can be employed on individual karts to enforce penalties, so it’s essential to stay within the rules and regulations!
We hear you, and we completely understand your situation. You’ve been behind the wheel of our 120cc karts, you’re a skilled and confident driver, and you’re 147cm tall. However, you may not have reached the required age just yet. The good news is, yes, you can join the 200cc fun. To make it official, all you need is an approval stamp from our race director. Give us a call to arrange this and get ready to hit the track!
